Free; donations appreciated. All are Welcome!

Irish-American artist and musician Reagh Greenleaf Jr will discuss Vermont's roots in Ireland, Scotland and Wales.

Reagh will tell the story of Celtic peoples in Vermont which intersects with the development of railroads, the stone quarrying industry, the American Civil War, and an ill-fated invasion of Canada.

As a highlight of the evening, Reagh will perform songs documenting Vermont's Celtic Heritage such as "West Rutland Marble Bawn" by a Tipperaryman who came to the Green Mountain State in 1858.
